Rowan Brae - Glencaple Dumfries
Holiday property description
The charming cottage was built in 1880 for a ship's captain at which time the historic port was extremely busy with ships. The modernised accommodation provides a super family holiday cottage from which to explore the local area which is designated as National Scenic Area of Outstanding Beauty. The cottage offers spacious accommodation including wood burning stoves in both sitting room and dining room together with smart tv and WIFI.
The cottage is in the heart of the historic village of Glencaple close to the historic quay which still remains. The village has a hotel/pub, tea room, children's play park and shop.
Coastal walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep up and down the Nith on the merse. There are superb opportunities to see a great variety of wildlife including many varied species of migrating birds including Barnacle Geese. The wildfowl and Wetland Trust at Caerlaverock is only a short drive away which offers a wonderful setting for seeing all the wintering waterfowl and there are many arranged events and ranger led walks which allow you to discover more about the merse and its history and development.
Local history and heritage can be discovered and enjoyed with days out to Caerlaverock Castle and other nearby sites including Sweetheart Abbey in the village of New Abbey or Drumlanrig Castle near Thornhill. Robert Burns features strongly in the area and his farm at Ellisland just north of Dumfries is open to the public and provides both an interesting museum together with charming riverside walks on the banks of the Nith.

Rowan Brae Reviews
2 star reviewInadequate seating for six people. Sitting room had seating for four. Inadequate kitchen equipment. One tiny lidless casserole, big enough for two people. No table mats or coasters. We emailed the owner, who did not offer to come and replace/provide them.
Good quality furniture and beds.
Beautiful quiet area with distant views.Great to hear that you liked the area. Thanks you for your feedback on the seats and other items, it is appreciated as it allows any items that need attention to be seen to. The owners have recently opened this house up and will be reviewing the kitchen inventory to make sure that it is sufficient. Extra chairs for both the dining room and sitting room are available in the conservatory.
